Tamara Kurtz was born a mutant following her parents exposure to fallout from the nuclear detonation over Hiroshima. She was recruited by Stryfe into the Mutant Liberation Front. On one mission, she and her teammates Sumo and Kamikaze were sent to Madripoor in order to oversee the distribution of a drug designed to contaminate the world's water supply. She was opposed in this mission by the New Mutants led by Cable, Sunfire and Wolverine.[1]

When the X-Men and X-Factor teamed up to bring down the MLF, they fought in Dust Bowl, Arkansas. Dragoness managed to lure Cannonball in close and disable him, but she fell when confronted by Storm, Polaris, and Rogue together.[2]

Following the apparent death of Stryfe, the MLF continued under various leaders without Dragoness. She reappeared when the MLF came under the leadership of Wildside, with whom Kurtz had a romantic involvement. She was eventually captured while opposing Operation: Zero Tolerance and placed in the custody of S.H.I.E.L.D..[3]

After M-Day

After the M-Day, Dragoness was one of the few mutants to retain their powers.[4]

She later relocated to Los Angeles, and was seen helping to escape Toad and Trance during the riots.[5]

With Dragoness, Litterbug and Bliss, Toad tried to seize control of the Utopia water supply but they were all stopped by Iceman.[6]
